AN APPOINTMENT IS ESSENTIAL to receive a food hamper. Leave a message if the phone is not attended and we will call you back.

Trinity North Community Care is funded by the
congregation and staffed entirely by volunteers. If you’d like to volunteer contact Ros pugs@iinet.net.au

The volunteers will listen carefully and provide assistance where possible.  Short term assistance in the form of food hampers may be offered from our Parish Pantry program to those undergoing difficulties with finances or illness in the family. Our staff will assist eligible people on low incomes to apply to the WA NILS scheme for loans up to $1500 for essential household goods such as washing machines or a refrigerator.

The History of Trinity North Community Care

1972.
A new congregation begins. A new suburb with very little infrastructure. There is no church building, just a group who meet in a suburban house and then a room above a restaurant near the beach at Sorrento. This church sees itself part of its community, providing for it, nurturing that sense of family.

The church grows and builds a centre, not a church as such, but a community centre. Playgroups  allow young mums and their children to form friendships. After school Kids club helps them learn about the Christian faith. Seniors meet together and enjoy some company.  A counselling service develops and a place for personal development. Legal advice,  community networking lunch time meetings.

These are just some of the activities which took place at the Wandoo Road centre of the Duncraig Uniting Church, and over the years the Duncraig Information and Care Centre has been the group ensuring that these ‘community centre’ activities continue.

2012.

A new congregation begins, formed by the 3 local congregations. Trinity North Uniting Church is now in established suburbs, but things have changed. Again, young families are moving into the area. Playgroups are needed again, and children’s activities are popular. While our community is fairly affluent on the whole, there are pockets of poverty, and the uncertainties of life can plunge families into financial crisis very quickly.

And so those 40 years have come full circle. The new name for our community outreach group – Trinity North Community Care – reflects  the commitment of our new congregation  to provide care and assistance when needed, especially to those who are struggling financially.
